Well Timed Stress

I’ve been telling you guys for years I’m weird and here’s another example of that. When most people get stressed or their head becomes...messy for lack of a better word; they drink or smoke or roll up in a ball and cry, I on the other hand bake.

When my mom was in hospital a few years back I baked everyday for 3 weeks, it’s how I put things out of my mind. Unlike blogging were you have to deal with things, baking is just about that recipe and making sure everything that goes in is perfect so the end result is delicious.  

When head messiness struck me this time I got lucky, it happened to be my step dad’s birthday so I got to channel all my head messiness into making his birthday cake. And because a normal cake is too easy (and I’m crazy) I decided to try and make my first ever shaped cake.

I’d call myself an above average baker but I’m no freaking decorator, I remind you of the cake I made my mom last year.

But I thought about it and decided a keg is a nice easy shape and shouldn’t be too hard to manage. So I gave it go; I don’t think the end result was too bad for my first attempt. I’m not in love with it but I’m sure my step dad will enjoy it....mainly because it tastes awesome. The major upside to shaped cakes is you get to eat some as cut it away so despite its looks I know it tastes good.

So that’s how I deal with stress and a “messy head”, what do you do? Let me know in the comment box below. And as always stay and play safe.


The Honest Bitch 


  1. I run :) Making me wish I were your neighbor girl ... That cake looks awesome and it looks like it would taste awesome too. So when can I come visit? Maybe you could do an airplane shaped cake :)

  2. I relieve the stress with sex and booze. That sounds healthy, huh?

  3. Take a look at your schedule and come of with solutions ahead of time
    for lunches and dinners out, this will give you a game plan to follow.
    Naturally, if you are not a morning person, setting your alarm for 5am to go run a few miles will probably fail.

  4. Make a list of your nutrition chart involving juice and fruits
    at the top followed by green vegetables and milk products.
    If you weigh yourself everyday or every other day and see that you've gained weight, your motivation may go down and you'll
    be likely to give up. Having some company can also make the fitness session more fun.
